Last night after seeing my post, babble.13287, buried by that ridiculously extended NAACP thread, it occurred to me that there's one class of posts that barely fits anywhere. Right now newbies are constantly confused by this and often posting in Creations as a result.
We need a forum for classifieds--that is, people seeking helpers on a project or offering services for dimes or whatnot. It should say that it's strictly for BYOND purposes, naturally, so we don't get all kinds of weird stuff there (heck, it isn't eBay), but I think it would otherwise work pretty well.
Also--and I've advanced this idea before--I think a lot of DBZers would get together through this medium. Knowing the type as I do and their (insert condescending snicker here) ability to collaborate on projects, I think you'd have a lot of them working together while not inundating the forums with as much of their own special charm. They'd work together for a few weeks, get frustrated at getting nowhere, then the group would fall apart. So there's the advantage of getting DBZers somewhat out of our hair without the danger of them actually producing anything.
Since my own post (babble.13287) belongs in Classifieds, and currently resides on page 3 of Babble, where I'd encourage anyone to read it even though I have no intention of bumping it (for a few days at least), we need a forum for this purpose.
